Middle peasants are paid below their value . As one FAO report noted, `For the most part returns to the peasant producer are extremely low when compared with minimum wage rates, despite the significant price increases of the past three years' (MDB, 1977, p . 5) . This constant uncertainty of market relations and changing producer prices simultaneously encourages and forces the householder producer to adopt private insurance schemes against the state . One of these includes producing for consumption as well as for exchange, even beyond the calls of necessity-as food, unlike cash crops, can be eaten, hoarded, or sold on the black market .

As Marx notes, `the production of absolute surplus-value turns exclusively on the length of the working day, whereas the production of relative surplus-value completely revolutionises the technical processes of labour and the groupings into which society is divided .

' Introduction The transition from school to work is a crucial moment in the reproduction of capitalist relations .
